Caring for Full-Grain Leather
Why Care for Leather?
Full-grain leather has the same structure as human skin and would benefit from conditioning to keep it soft, supple and beautiful. Proper conditioning and moisture is also essential to enhance the vitality and durability of leather.
Due to its dual-layer structure, full-grain leather requires multi-level conditioning with natural moisturizers to enhance the grain, pull-up and sheen. The grain layer needs a thicker consistency conditioning such as a wax or balm to prevent the grains from getting saturated. The relatively looser fiber structure absorbs oils more readily than grain layer and need a deep penetrating lighter consistency oil.
EEVEs' leathercare products are developed with natural ingredients such as Bees Wax, Carnauba Wax, Shea butter, Lanolin. A combination of natural essential oils from Lavender, Lemon Grass, Thyme, Cedar, Vetiver and Patchouli enhances the natural scent of leather.

Natural veg-tan leather has a characteristic spicy, woody aroma that adds to the character and elegance of leather. This aroma is a blend of scent of tree tannins used in the tanning and the scent of hide fibers. EEVEs' Leather Care is formulated to enhance this natural scent.
